The Tiger Fish is a part of a series in which I am experimenting with combining copper pieces with Bullseye’s reactive glass.  The reaction of the copper to the glass causes a chemical reaction that makes the copper look like is is dripping.  The glass itself starts out clear and turns a pale green in reaction to the copper.

When ever I am learning a new casting, color, cold working, or mold making technique, I create a fish form to try it out.  The fish is a simple form and I can spend my time learning a new technique rather than trying to sculpt a new form I haven’t done before.  Here are some of my fish forms. You will see other fish forms throughout my website.

Hiking California

The Hiking California series is composed of glass tiles varying in size.  I collect seeds, leaves, rock, sticks and other elements when I go hiking.  Back in my studio, I make a mold of the pieces I collected on my hike. Then I pour wax into the mold material and I have a wax copy.  From there I build a tile that is cast into a glass reminder of my favorite places to hike.
